"You're Here For One Reason: To Fuck Us Good!": Let's Remember The Time Earl Weaver Completely Lost It On An Umpire

Hall of Fame manager Earl Weaver passed away last Friday, and that makes us very sad. What makes us very happy, however, is the video above, which features Weaver going absolutely crazy on a first base umpire who had just called a balk on the Orioles' pitcher.


If you pay close attention, you'll notice that despite the filthy nature of Weaver's rant, he never curses directly at the umpire. One of the tenets set forth by Weaver in the wonderful book Weaver on Strategy is to never curse directly at an umpire. You can tell them that they are trying to fuck you, but you can't call them fuckers.

Enjoy the masterful tirade.
